... and walked away with second place and 75 bucks. icon_biggrin.gif

It was a small contest, only about 12 cakes were entered. But I still felt pretty awesome! And I believe I might would've had a better chance at the number one spot if I had been able to smooth my icing out better. That's something I'm having to work on.

The cakes were auctioned off to benefit a local charity. And the family who got my cake were just perfect for it. There had been a Halloween costume contest before the auction began and their son was dressed up as Snoopy! I got a picture of him with the cake. Too cute!

The cake's in my pictures!

Congratulations! It's a great cake icon_biggrin.gif

This weekend I tried the Melvira method with the foam roller...just for laughs I told the old guy at Home Depot who works in the paint department what I was buying the roller for, should have seen his face icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Anyhow, it works really well and it will get rid of exactly the part that was bothering you icon_biggrin.gif
